The process for developing road projects take several years; many factors must be considered. These factors include:
- Accident history
- Critical area regulations (CAR)
- Design standards
- Information that residents provide about the area
- Location of homes and public right-of-way
- Location of utilities
- Sight distance
- Soil compaction
- Traffic volumes
- Wetlands, stormwater runoff, drainage, and water quality
Snohomish County Public Works held a public meeting on February 23, 2017 to discuss three projects in this area. The projects were Seattle Hill Rd, 35th Ave SE, and 156th St SE. Staff was available to answer questions about the construction on Seattle Hill Rd, review proposed road improvements to the section of 35th Ave SE, and gather feedback on potential designs for the 156th St SE project.
